Johnny Cakes

1 Tbsp. sugar (try Florida Crystals brand)
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1 cup corn meal
1 cup boiling water
3 to 4 Tbsp. plain soy milk
Vegetable oil, for frying
Margarine (try Earth Balance brand)

• In a large bowl, combine the sugar, salt, and the corn meal. Add the boiling water and stir well. Thin immediately with the soy milk to a mixture that will drop easily from a spoon. (Additional soy milk may be necessary: The mixture should be the consistency of thin mashed potatoes.)
• Heat the vegetable oil in the griddle. Drop the batter by the spoonful and cook for 5 to 6 minutes on each side until a brown, crunchy crust is formed and the inside is soft.
• Serve hot with margarine.

Makes 4 to 6 servings

    Pretty good. But if you want awesome add half a can of pumpkin and a half tbs of pumpkin pie spice. Sub sugar with agave nectar, scratch margin and milk-sub since I never keep it. I baked on 350 on olive oil and non stick cookie sheet. Maple syrup to finish it.

    I am trying this for the first time. I feel being healthier and helping the environment is a true calling. I have eaten meat but trying to transition. Any help would be gladly appreciated.

    Re: Amber, humans have been drinking milk for thousands of years before Hormone injection technologies existed. I promise you there is someone out there who is producing milk without obtaining it from a bleeding, pus filled vestige as you suggested.

    Not a good idea to have butter, actually you should cut all dairy from your diet. It is almost unavoidable to find any dairy products that weren’t obtained by torturing the cow. You should read a book called Skinny Bitch. It explains to you all of the best ways to be vegan and the facts behind it. Basically a little info to start you out, cows are only naturally supposed to make about 10 lbs. of milk a day, and that is only when they have had a calf and are feeding it. Instead, they are pumped hormones so that their bodies believe they are needing to feed about 10 calves, making 100 lbs. of milk at a time. As a result, their utters break out in sores, and pus and blood leak into the milk. Not appetizing is it? Especially when you consider that we are actually ingesting another mammal’s breast milk. It would be essentially the same thing to drink milk from a gorilla, or even a cat.

    Does anyone know if it would be okay to just have butter instead of Margarine?
